I have turned away from the big boxes because of pink slime and make a special trip to another grocery chain. I have purchased their meat loaf for over 2 years and have been exceptionally happy. Until now. They too, have changed and the meat loaf I onced loved all $5.96 per pound had to be thrown out - it was clearly pink slime. I am devastated. I ordered meat loaf today from Allen Brothers. I don't like the price but we both work and eating out is more expensive and we both enjoy meat loaf. Why isn't ammonia in beef on the labels? How can Americans spend $5.96 per pound for this junk?

I purchased meat loaf in the deli, already prepared, ready to cook. I have done this a dozens times and have been thrilled - great meal for the family under $10 depending upon the amount of meat.
I thought they had an in-house butcher - sad.
What I was wondering, is the meat already cooked, or is it raw premixed. and then you have to bake it. I guess I've never seen pre-made meatloaf raw. Only seen pre-cooked by Hormel.
The meat is supposedly uncooked but when we went to cook it, it would never turn fully brown. It was "prepared" meat loaf from the butcher's section at a local grocery shop.
I would say as before, it is better to buy your ground meat and not a "prepared" meatloaf. Your running a risk of food contamination because in meatloaf you have eggs and bread. Making the meatloaf yourself is the better and less expensive.
